Ashampoo Virus Quickscan is a compact and portable but powerful application which lets you perform a quick scan job on your computer to verify it for viruses, as the name implies. It is very easy to work with it, since it integrates limited and intuitive options.
As installation is not a requirement, you can save the app to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any computer with minimum effort, as opposed to running it directly from any location on the HDD.
Another important aspect to mention is that, thanks to its portability, the tool does not add new entries to the Windows Registry or leave files behind on the hard disk after removing it.
The interface of the application is based on a regular window with a minimalistic layout, where you can start the scanning procedure with the simple click of a button. Results shows total scanned processes and malware traces, alongside detected objects. It is also possible to save log details to file for further scrutiny.
However, it is important to mention that Ashampoo Virus Quickscan is not able to remove infected files. In order to do so, you must get ahold of such specialized software.
The app is very light on the system resources, using a minimal quantity of CPU and RAM, thus it doesn't affect the computer's performance. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests, and the tool did not hang or crash. Thanks to its overall simplicity, inexperienced users can quickly learn how to work with Ashampoo Virus Quickscan.
